Breedon gets ready to pilot Podfather for proof of delivery
Paper tickets could be a thing of the past with the introduction of new proof of delivery software, Podfather. The system will shortly be piloted in the Cement business and if successful could be rolled out across other divisions.
Podfather has been providing electronic ticketing and proof of delivery solutions to the construction industry for over 20 years. The solution comprises a cloud-based back office system and an easy-to-use smartphone app for drivers which enable transport teams to eradicate paper tickets and improve visibility.
Drivers participating in the pilot will be able to download the Podfather smartphone app that can run on most Android and Apple smartphones and tablets. It will enable them to capture and send back proof of delivery information to their business units in real-time.
“We are embarking on an exciting pilot with the Podfather team,” comments Steve Miller, Breedon's IT Projects Engineer responsible for the supplier selection and system rollout. “The system could
revolutionise how we plan, manage and monitor our vehicle movements and I look forward to seeing how we can embrace this technology for the greater good of our organisation.”
